A base class for multi-layer operations with target layer.

You can use the elements doc and tex to document the operation. This is often useful for later changes as the logic behind complex chains of operations is often not easy to follow by colleques and/or partners.


The attributes and elements are shown below, in a sorted per type fashion.
In case a list is printed after an element, it indicates that you can have many, otherwise it should be a single element. With a optional it tells the element is not required.

A="..."  B="..." ... > ...
  <doc> ... </doc>   list
  <groupRef> ... </groupRef>   list
  <tex> ... </tex>   list


The schema file can be downloaded or viewed at xPDK_Layout.

Type pdaGDSlayerReference documentation:


Type pdaDocumentation documentation:
This field allows some (short, few lines) documentation to be written. It can be a long string, but the idea is not to replace a design manual.
This fields is like tex which allows documentation in LaTex format; doc is restricted to plain text.


Type pdaIdentifier documentation:
Identifiers are used in the Python library for the getName() and setName() function and can thus be used to identify the different elements in list s.
In text the specification is a letter, followed by letters, numbers, underscore or dot. The XSD schema validation is a regular expression: [A-Za-z]([A-Za-z0-9_])*


Type pdaTexDocumentation documentation: doc , but tex can be a long text in LaTex format to document the layer in more detail if needed.

You can document anything relevant for the topic you want to define.

Multiple paragraphs is fine. Format is Latex, so more complex content is possible.
